”One would hope more Chicago jazz fans would pick up a copy of Departures and catch this talented and original young voice on the scene the next time he comes to town, and let us hope that is sooner rather than later.”-Brad Walseth (ChicagoJazz.net)

“One has to applaud Geraghty for taking risks and attempting to fuse different cultures together”-Jazz Review.com

“Departures is one of the most comfortable albums I’ve listened to in awhile. Listening to it feels like throwing on a well broken-in pair of slippers. For fans of contemporary jazz, there’s no way you’ll go wrong with this disc. Definitely recommended.” -Paul Abella (WDCB Radio)
